Here are my answers to Jess's questions:

1. How did you meet your best friend?
This may sound weird but I don't have 1 best friend. I have multiple fantastic, great friends and I can't chose ONE best friend. They are all, each and every one, so special to me and I would not know what to do without them.
- I met one of my great friends, Lynn, when I was 6 years old and she was playing in a sand box and I just asked if I could play along with her. We still see each other a lot and have fun together. 
- Through Lynn, I met an awesome girl named Vicky! She's amazing!
- Another fantastic friend, Yne, I met when a mutual friend introduced us to each other. We didn't became close friends right away, but one day we just started talking and we became close friends. I also still see her a lot, together with Lynn!
- When I was 14, I started taking dancing lessons and I met two girls (Lisa and Marijke) that are now very close friends. We don't see each other all the time, but when we meet we have so much fun together!
- When I was 13, there was this awesome girl in my class named Caroline (Caro). We go way back and whenever we see each other, we can talk for HOURS!
- I had to redo my 5th year of high school (some of you may know this as 11th Grade) and I became friends with a girl named Celien. She is now my best shopping buddy!
- My friends in my class are also amazing girls. At the beginning of the school year, I was a bit lonely in Ghent. But now I met all these amazing people in my class and they are all so different, but so much fun!
2. What's one makeup thing you struggle with? 

Eyeliner. I'm so jealous of all those girls on youtube who always have perfect winged eye liner. It's so hard! I have gotten better over the years, but I still struggle with it. I still can't do the wing, it's uneven and just looks like a mess.
3. What's one place you really want to see before you die?

New York, as many times as possible!
4. What do you splurge on?

Makeup. I love saving money and than go to Paris to buy makeup at Sephora. Benefit, Urban Decay,... They are not the most inexpensive brands, but they are worth the money, in my opinion.
5. Who would you pick to play you in a movie?

Blake Lively, because she is just gorgeous!
6. What is your absolute favorite store to shop at?

Right now, I love NafNaf and Bershka. I also like H&M, Zara and Pull&Bear. For beauty, I love to go to Sephora.
7. What is your favorite snack food?

I like chips, olives,... But something I love eating while watching television is toasted bread with nutella. I try no to eat it all the time ;)
8. If you could have a role in any TV show, what would it be?

Glee. I just started watching this show and I love it!
A role in Sex And The City would be awesome too, that's one of my favorite shows ever.
9. You are having a dinner party. You can invite anyone, dead or alive. Who would it be?

I think I would invite Andy Warhol and Jackson Pollock, Twiggy, Edie Sedgwick, Audrey Hepburn and Marie Antoinette. I would also invite some famous people of today like Marc Jacobs, Blake Lively, Leighton Meester and Neil Patrick Harris. Music would be provided by Amy Winehouse, Katy Perry and Adele.
10. What is one beauty product on your wishlist right now?

Urban Decay Glide on pencils, Too Faced Bronzer, Lorac Pro Palette, The Balm Nude'tude palette, the new Benefit palettes, Wet 'n Wild products in general, Revlon products in general,... I could go on for hours! ;)
11. What is your favorite cosmetics brand?

Benefit. Most of their products are awesome and the packaging of the products are like little pieces of art.

11 Random Facts About Me:

1. When I was two years old, I was jumping around in our living room sofa. I fell off the sofa and hit my head on our living room table (which was made of stone). I was bleeding pretty hard and had to go to the hospital to get stitches.
2. I study Occupational Therapy in Ghent, Belgium.
3. Even though I said I would like to appear in Glee, I can't sing. I'm the worst singer I know.
4. I met my boyfriend online. We became friends and decided to meet each other (in a public place!). It was love at first sight. Two years and 8 months later, we're still together.
5. My first tooth fell out while I was fighting with my older brother.
6. My favorite poem is 'Stop all the clocks' by W.H. Auden.
7. I have two pets: a dog named Dempsey and a cat named Prutske.

9. I have two older brothers: Stijn and Thomas.
10. I really like giraffes.
11. I lost 22 pounds in the last 1,5 years. I would like to lose more weight, but living in Ghent makes it harder (less sport, more snacks etc,...) I even gained a few pounds. I'm going to find a way to do more sport and I'll try to eat healthier to get in shape for summer! :)
